435th SFS teaches Airmen Fly Away Security Story and photo by Senior Airman Damon Kasberg 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs After months of planning and preparation, members of the 435th Security Forces Squadron initiated the new U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa Fly Away Security program and had its first class of graduates April 18 on Ramstein. The 10-day predeployment course is designed to teach security forces Airmen how to keep aircraft and aircrew safe in austere locations. “The course is separated into several different blocks,” said Staff Sgt. Mark Karas, 435th SFS senior instructor. “There are classroom and hands-on portions, demonstrations, a field training exercise and evaluations. Instructors and students of a Fly Away Security course participate in a three-mile run prior to graduation April 18 on Ramstein. After completing the 10-day predeployment course, the defenders are ready to be deployed throughout the world, protecting aircrew and aircraft in austere locations.

Recognizing the volunteer force COMMENTARY

by Lt. Col. Thomas Ausherman 86th Force Support Squadron commander


he elimination of the draft in 1973 marked the beginning of an all-volunteer force in the U.S. military, but that’s not the volunteer force I would like to address. Instead, I’d like to highlight a volunteer force enhancing our local community. At Ramstein, our volunteer force contributes in many ways, making our community a better, more fun place to live and serve. Volunteering can take on many forms: helping out for a few minutes with a pop-up project; committing to coaching a season of youth sports; or agreeing to a tour-long obligation. Volunteering makes a meaningful, positive impact on our

community and also benefits those volunteering. The personal benefits of volunteering include being part of the community, developing new skills, meeting people, enhancing your resume, networking, improving the lives of others and mentoring. Though not always the case, volunteering can often provide a gateway to employment. Contributions, large and small, add up to make the KMC better while improving relationships and building partnerships with our host community. So although many view volunteering as its own reward, there are ways to recognize the outstanding efforts of volunteers in the community. While a simple “thank you” goes a long way, there are several programs available to recognize volunteers. In addition to recognition

Everything they learn here is to help them protect the Air Force’s multimillion dollar aircraft and the personnel operating those aircraft.” To protect assets, students learned a variety of skills including weapon takeaway techniques, combatives, cross-culture communication and legal considerations. “The course really put what we’re going to be doing when we deploy into perspective,” said Staff Sgt. Ryan Friend, 569th U.S. Forces Police Squadron installation patrolman. “The instructors made it as realistic as possible. They taught us what to expect in the regions we’ll be in, the kind of people we might encounter and how we need to handle situations.” In order to give the students a better understanding of what their missions might be, they spent time on the flight line during the aircraft familiarization portion, getting to know the ins and outs of a C-130J Super Hercules.

“Going out to the C-130 and seeing exactly what we’re going to be working on was the best day,” said Airman 1st Class Cameron Triboulet, 569th USFPS security forces member. “The training wouldn’t be complete without it. I feel much more confident now than I did at the beginning.” The students weren’t the only ones who learned from the experience. Having the first group of Airmen go through the revamped course gave instructors insight on how to improve the program. “This beta class was an eye opener,” Karas said. “The students did daily critiques on every single block of instruction, giving us an idea of what we need to spend more or less time on. That feedback from them is an important part in improving the course.” The course is designed to receive feedback from these Airmen halfway through deployments, letting

under our wing’s annual awards program, the Air Force has two recognition programs to formally recognize volunteers. The Air Force Volunteer Excellence Award recognizes federal civilians, family members, and military and federal retirees who perform outstanding volunteer community service of a sustained, direct and consequential nature. Military members can be nominated for the Military Outstanding Volunteer Service Medal. It is awarded to military members who provide sustained, significant service bringing about tangible results. Award approval authority resides at the group commander level. Members can contact the military personnel section for guidance on this decoration. If you’d like to volunteer or gather more information on the

above recognition programs, contact the A&FRC’s volunteer coordinator at 480-5100. It’s as easy as filling out the volunteer registration form, and you’ll be contributing in no time. Ultimately, volunteering involves donating your time for the benefit of others. Unlike many things in life, volunteering gives you the freedom to decide on your terms what you do, when and how often you do it. If you’re not already part of the KMC’s volunteer force, give it a try. You may find you like it. Whether or not you remain anonymous in your volunteer activities, log your contributions for certification by the A&FRC for future use, or enjoy receiving recognition for your contributions. The choice is yours, and I thank you for making our community better.

US, Polish air force fly toward brighter future

U.S. and Polish military members hold flags as a C-130J Super Hercules assigned to the 37th Airlift Squadron performs a grass-strip landing at Powidz Air Base, Poland, April 10.

Story and photos by Senior Airman Jonathan Stefanko 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs POWIDZ AIR BASE, Poland — Air Force members left Powidz Air Base, Poland, April 17 after completing bilateral training with the Polish air force. The training featured two C-130J Hercules from the 37th Airlift Squadron, two C-130H aircraft from the 302nd Airlift Wing and military personnel from around Europe. “Flying in Poland affords the 37th AS a tremendous opportunity to accomplish training that we’d otherwise have difficulty obtaining,” said 1st Lt. Kenneth Hertzler, 37th AS co-pilot. “Our time with the Poles was important

for all of us because our air forces were able to exchange with one another in terms of experience and ideas. With that exchange, we’re able to continue to improve and build upon this already incredible partnership we have with the Polish air force.” In addition to routine flying, the 37th AS and 302nd AW trained alongside Polish C-130E aircraft during formation. Additional training included nighttime low-level training, unimproved landing zones and dropping Polish air force paratroopers. “As a relatively new copilot in the C-130J, I learned so much from this trip,” Hertzler said. “I learned how to employ a formation composed of three different generations of the C-130 and what sort of considerations need to be made

Pilots from the 37th Airlift Squadron fly above Poland during a flying training deployment April 8. The purpose of the training was to strengthen the partnership and interoperability with Polish counterparts.

during the planning process. I received a glimpse of how the Polish C-130 squadron operates and was surprised to learn how much our air forces have in common.” Though it was a great opportunity for the U.S. Airmen to learn, they were not the only ones to improve their skill sets. “Conducting this training is very important,” said Polish air force St. Chor. Jarostaw Koztowski, 33rd Air Base loading zone survey manager. “The Polish pilots learn new skills from their American counterparts, and it helps build support between the two armed forces. “In 2014 we were able to carry out several hundred in a four month span,” Koztowski continued. “It is because of the work we do alongside the Americans that helped us reach that achievement.” While working together, friendships form and continue long after the end of the training. “We are only able to work hand-in-hand twice a year, so we try to maintain the relationships made here after the training,” Koztowski said. “We email, talk and do whatever else we need to do to stay in touch with our American counterparts. The experience gained is greatly appreciated while everyone is here, but we want to continue gaining skills any way we can.” Though the deployment has concluded, invaluable skills were gained and friend-

ships were made, leaving U.S. and Polish airmen with

a smoother path for training in the future.

AF top leaders hold event for Sexual Assault Awareness, Prevention Month by Senior Airman Hailey Haux 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Command Information WASHINGTON — Airmen gathered in the Pentagon with the Air Force’s top leaders for a ‘chalk walk’ to raise awareness about sexual assault, April 20. As Airmen began to collect in the hallway covered with paintings of previous Air Force leaders, there was something different. On the floor in the center of the corridor, was a line of posters Airmen had made. Written on the posters were messages, some of them reading: ‘It’s all on us,’ ‘no means no,’ and ‘Airmen take care of other Airmen,’ — these messages were only a few of the many that stood out to Secretary of the Air Force Deborah Lee James. “Today marks near the end of Sexual Assault Awareness Month, but it is certainly not the end of the crusade. The work goes on,” James said. “We have Air Force bases

and installations all over the place that are highlighting our commitment to ending sexual assault.” She continued to say that the Air Force has made progress, with reports being up and prevalence being down. “Our sexual assault response coordinators, victim’s advocates and special victim’s council are providing leading edge care to our survivors,” James said. “All of that is great, but none of it is good enough. There is a lot more to be done. The work goes on, and together we are going to get there.” Both James and Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Mark A. Welsh III stressed that this is a round-the-clock commitment. “Today is about reminding ourselves to continue to value each and every individual and their right to live in an environment that values diversity, inclusion, respect and the contribution of every single person who serves our Air Force,” Welsh said. “And it’s their absolute right to an envi-

ronment free from harassment or assault of any kind. It’s a 24/7, 365 commitment to changing this environment where it still exists in our Air


Force and absolutely never, ever tolerating it. That’s why we’re here.” As things came to a close, every person in the hall-

way linked arms and had a moment of silence as a representation of how serious the Air Force is about moving forward together.

Mauritanian senior leaders visit 86th AW, 435th AGOW Photo by Staff Sgt. Armando A. Schwier-Morales

Senior leaders from the Mauritanian air force listen to Col. Steven Edwards, 435th Contingency Response Group commander, April 22 on Ramstein. The visit is just one of many events designed to strengthen and build partnerships between the U.S. and its allies.

7th CSC commemorates former commanding general by Sgt. Daniel Friedberg 221st Public Affairs Detachment Memories surfaced in retired Gen. Gordon R. Sullivan’s speech as he recalled his friend, Brig. Gen. Richard Dirgins, during an April 17 ceremony at Daenner Kaserne. The 7th Civil Support Command’s headquarters building was named for Dirgins, who passed away in 1995, just six months after leaving command of the unit’s predecessor, the 7th Army Reserve Command. “Our purpose here today is to rededicate this building in honor of Richard Dirgins, my classmate, my friend and a great American Soldier, a patriot,” said Sullivan, who attended Norwich University in Vermont alongside Dirgins. “I have such fond memories of him.” Dirgins’ widow, Christa, and senior U.S. and German leaders watched as a plaque and portrait of Dirgins were unveiled. A new sign outside the building bears Dirgins’ name.

Dirgins was commanding general of the 7th ARCOM from Dec. 25, 1987 to July 10, 1994. Based at the time in Schwetzingen, Germany, the 7th ARCOM evolved into the 7th CSC, the U.S. Army Reserve’s only forward-stationed reserve command in Europe. During his tenure, the command grew from two to 23 units, increased its strength from 260 soldiers to almost 1,000 and deployed five units to southwest Asia in support of Operations Desert Shield and Storm. Sullivan, who was the 32nd Army Chief of Staff from 1993 to 1995, said Dirgins was a key leader in the development of the USAR. With tears in his eyes, Sullivan, a native of Quincy, Massachusetts, warmly recalled his lifelong friendship with Dirgins. He spoke of their days at Norwich University and time spent together serving as Army captains in Germany. Sullivan recalled his first assignment in Germany when he sailed to the port in Bremerhaven, took a train to

Frankfurt and then rode in a truck to Ray Barracks in Friedberg. “I got out of the truck and Dick Dirgins was there, sitting in a Porsche,” Sullivan said. Sullivan, who now serves as the president and chief executive officer of the Association of the United States Army, explained that Dirgins remained in Europe, raised a family and continued his loyal service with the Army Reserve. Many people in the audience could relate, as they have done the same. Having reserve forces in Europe helps U.S. commanders support expanding NATO reach in central Europe and elsewhere in the region, Sullivan said. “I’ve got to tell you folks, organizations like the 7th CSC are critical to the wellbeing, and to enable the commanders here,” he said. “We’re still here; we’re still paying attention, and the 7th CSC is a part of it.” Sullivan spoke to the crowd of hundreds who gathered for the ceremony commemorating Dirgins’ 1995 funeral

which took place under the clear skies in Bavaria. “To the best of my knowledge, Dick may be the only American general officer buried in this country,” Sullivan said. “That will show you his dedication to this alliance and to the Federal Republic of Germany. He loved it here.” In his remarks, Brig. Gen. Arlan DeBlieck, 7th CSC commanding general, said the event celebrated one of the Army Reserve’s premier leaders who established a profession of

arms culture which enabled the reserves to integrate into the total USAR today. “Today, the 7th CSC supports the total Army and NATO forces in building and maintaining a ‘strong Europe’ and deterring potential aggressors to preserve peace in Europe,” DeBlieck said. “We honor Brig. Gen. Richard Dirgins, who as the 7th’s commanding general for almost seven years, set the conditions for the 7th’s success.”

21st OWS realigns under ACC Story and photo by Senior Airman Nicole Sikorski 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs KAPAUN AIR STATION, Germany — The 21st Operational Weather Squadron has been realigned to move from U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa to Air Combat Command. Due to a restructure in the Air Force Weather Agency, all weather units will fall under the 557th Weather Wing, which will report directly to 12th Air Force and ACC. The 557th WW provides support for all air operations and mission requirements. It is comprised of both the 1st and 2nd Weather Groups. As a result of the consolidation, the 21st OWS will fall under the 1st WG. According to Lt. Col. Gerald Sullivan, 21st OWS commander, the change in com-

mand structure will not affect the mission of the 21st OWS, and they will continue to provide support for the same units in both Europe and Africa. “No matter which major command we report to, we are still here to support U.S. European and U.S. Africa Command day in and day out,” Sullivan said. On any given day, the 21st OWS looks for how the weather may affect the mission in their Area of Responsibility. However, other weather units may analyze weather patterns differently for their AOR. The consolidation of the weather agencies will allow operating procedures to be the same across the command. “(It is important to be consistent) because the weather is one of those things that you don’t think about, but heavily impacts everyday life,” said 2nd Lt. Melissa Templeton, 21st OWS regional forecaster.

Staff Sgt. Yza Jones, 21st Operational Weather Squadron weather forecaster, reviews weather patterns on Vogelweh.

“Beyond the daily radio forecasts that you hear, we support every flying unit (in our AOR). We also support our assets here. Weather has an impact on (everything from) how much food you have on

your table to the planning of (construction).” Not only do they issue warnings for pilots, but the 21st OWS acts as a centralized unit for weather dissemination in EUCOM and

AFRICOM by sending out watches, advisories and forecasts to weather flights. The realignment of the AFWA will allow weather units to work on the same page to ensure mission success.

German volunteers for American chapel Story and photos by Lt. Col. Jefferson Wolfe 7th Civil Support Command Public Affairs Officer One of the volunteers at Daenner Chapel drives 100 miles every week to attend church services. Christian Führer, a German national and a member of the Ministry Advisory Council for Daenner Chapel’s Chapel Next, greets the congregation every week as they walk through the doors. “Christian is the first person you see when you arrive at the chapel,” said Army Reserve Chaplain (Lt. Col.) Brian Harki, the 7th Civil Support Command chaplain. “You would never guess that he lives the furthest away. Most people don’t know Christian very well because he is always more interested in caring for others than talking about himself.” Daenner Chapel is the third American church Führer has attended since the mid-80s. Back then, all the American institutions in Germany were wide open, and the Germans could enter and join the Americans during worship services, Führer said. He first became interested in American culture when, as a teenager in Mannheim, he rode his bicycle onto the American base. He followed cars into Benjamin Franklin Village, where he found “a wonderful American microcosm.”

Christian Führer (left), a volunteer at Daenner Chapel, talks to Army Maj. Greg Spears, a member of the 10th Army Air Defense and Missile Command, before church services April 19 at Daenner Kaserne.. Führer, a German national, has been attending services and volunteering in American military chapels since the '80s.

The base was open, and he was able to explore and learn about the United States and its people. “There cannot be many people like Christian who has served American chapels as a foreign national as long as he has,” Harki said. As he got older, he started volunteering at the local USO. One of the other volunteers was the wife of an American chaplain. She invited him to come to the church. “It became a hobby, a passion and a calling,” Führer said. “Once I got attached to that church, I never let go.” He started attending ser-

vices in Mannheim, which had approximately 400 people attending protestant services. At first, Führer stayed in the back, because he didn’t know English very well. After a while, however, he joined the chorus and rang bells during services. He also became a chaperone for the youth group and then an usher and greeter. Führer continued attending services at the church in Mannheim until it closed May 6, 2012. About 40 people attended the last service — most of them were military retirees. “It was a heartbreaker for me,” he said.

For many years, new Soldiers would arrive every August and September to replace others who had moved on. The base and the church, however, stopped getting new Soldiers in 2009. The existing congregation slowly moved away. “After 2009, in church we had nothing but farewells,” Führer said. When the Mannheim church closed, he volunteered and attended services in Heidelberg for a year until the post closed Aug. 18, 2013. It was after that when he began making the 85 km trip to Kaiserslautern from his home in Neulussheim every week. He became involved as an usher and greeter and a member of the Ministry Advisory Council. When he isn’t volunteering for the church, Führer is teaching at the Duale Hochschule Baden-Württemberg in Mannheim as a college professor, and head of the Service Marketing Department at the School of Business. “I see Christian as the bridge that touches both countries, the U.S. and Germany, with church as the common place in the middle,” Harki said. “Christian is truly valued and appreciated.” Why does Führer keep coming to American churches despite the closures and the long drives? “After all these years, my God speaks English,” he said. American churches, especially in the military, are very authentic, he said. Especially after the deployments in the ’90s through today, the Soldiers and their chaplains have come through some very tough experiences. “Army chaplains are very authentic people,” Führer said. In addition, he sees himself as a continuous factor in a congregation that changes, providing continuity from which newcomers can draw. “If I can help out and fill that gap, for me it’s a privilege and a blessing,” he said.

contribute our strengths to this recovery effort,” said Gen. Darren McDew, Air Mobility Command commander. The 7.9-magnitude earthquake has reportedly left more than 4,000 dead and thousands more still missing. In addition, thousands of people are currently reported to be without food, water or shelter. “Whenever and wherever our Air Force is needed, Airmen are ready to answer the call,” said Deborah Lee James, secretary of the Air Force. “Our Airmen are proud to deliver critical humanitarian relief and comfort to others during a time of need.” The first Air Force C-17 delivered 70 personnel, including a U.S. Agency for International Development Disaster Assistance Response Team, the Fairfax County Urban Search and Rescue team, and several journalists, along with 45 square tons of cargo. The second aircraft, carrying approximately 50 passengers, included a Los Angeles urban search and rescue team, working dogs and additional relief supplies. “With humanitarian relief operations, there is always a tremendous spirit of cooperation and support,” said Gen. Mark A. Welsh III, chief of staff of the Air Force. “The Air Force is able to use its global reach and partner with other agencies to deliver timely assistance. Our Airmen continue to make me proud.” Prior to the earthquake, 26 Department of Defense personnel and one U.S. C-130 Hercules, were already in Nepal to conduct a previously scheduled training exercise. All DOD personnel in Nepal are accounted for. A DOD team is helping the Nepalese army at Ratna Park set up tents for those displaced by earthquake damage, as well as using their medical training and working with the Nepalese army to assess and treat the wounded.

212th CSH Soldiers run full field hospital during LIVEX Story by 21st Theater Sustainment Command Public Affairs Office Soldiers from the 212th Combat Support Hospital, 30th Medical Brigade, 21st Theater Sustainment Command, conducted a wide range of medical operations in a field environment April 13 through 21, during a live exercise, LIVEX, at Miesau Army Depot. The exercise began with Soldiers rapidly constructing a field hospital using mostly tents. They accomplished this task within three days, building a hospital with a wide range of capabilities including an emergency room, more than 80 hospital beds, an intensive care unit, a radiology department, a pharmacy and even an operating room. The Soldiers of the 212th CSH erected the emergency room, bed space and other portions of the hospital within the first 24 hours of starting construction. The medical Soldiers were able to begin seeing patients right away as they continued to construct the rest of the facility. “Sometimes when we’re doing an exercise, the whole hospital isn’t necessarily here,” said Capt. Tonia Jordan, an emergency room nurse with the 212th CSH. “For this exercise, it was important that all functions of the 212th CSH are here, so there was a little bit more

with this exercise than what has been typical in the past.” The LIVEX gave the 212th CSH the opportunity to fully test their capabilities in a wide range of activities that they could encounter while deployed. “The real importance of this exercise is that it’s a multinational and multi-component training event that’s another part of Europe’s leadership laboratory developing a strong Europe,” said Command Sgt. Maj. Rodney Rhoades, the 21st TSC’s senior enlisted leader. “(The members of the 212th CSH) are standing ready to ensure that our Soldiers on the battlefield are ready to go at a moment’s notice. And if there is an injury, if something does happen, you’ve got the very best professionals taking care of you.” The exercise tested the 212th CSH in a variety of situations, such as treating patients following a mass casualty situation, performing surgery in the field and even conducting a blood drive. “It’s important for us to train for the worst of the worst so that we’re prepared for anything,” said Capt. Michelle Fredach, an ER nurse with the 212th CSH. “Whether it be working in an inclement environment or receiving (mass casualties) right off the bat, it’s better to prepare for the worst so that if it does happen, you know what you’re doing.”

Medical professionals from the 212th Combat Support Hospital, 30th Medical Brigade, conduct a wisdom tooth extraction during a live exercise, LIVEX, April 20, at the Miesau Army Depot. Patients volunteered to have their surgeries conducted in the field so that Soldiers from the 212th CSH could practice performing medical procedures in a field environment.

One of the most unique aspects of the LIVEX was the two-day period where Soldiers conducted real-world surgery on live patients in the field. Patients from Landstuhl Regional Medical Center volunteered to have their surgeries conducted at the field hospital. “They always say train as you fight, and that’s a really important part of doing this out here,” said volunteer patient Pfc. Minjae Lee, a paralegal with the 1st General Support Aviation Battalion, 214th Aviation Regiment, 12th Combat Aviation Brigade. “It’s important to make sure everyone knows what to do so they can become acclimated to a field situation. “I’m not too nervous about the procedure,” Lee continued before having three of his wisdom teeth extracted. “It’s pretty cool and it’s a good story to tell.” While most of the medical professionals of the 212th CSH rotate in and out of LRMC and are proficient in their skills, operating in the field gave them an opportunity to come together and hone their skills in a deployed environment. “For the most part we are

normally at LRMC working at the hospital, and these live exercises allow us to come down and work side by side with our medics and the rest of the personnel in the 212th CSH,” Fredach said. “It allows us to hone our skills, and it gives us an opportunity to work with the Soldiers we are assigned with.” “Most of us work in the hospital so we tend to be up to speed on our skills, but that’s in a fixed stationed hospital,” Jordan added. “Coming out here and working with our teams is extremely important. If we were put in a life-ordeath situation, we need to be able to save lives.” It was not only the Soldiers of the 212th CSH conducting operations during the LIVEX; Soldiers from more than 10 partner nations also participated in portions of the exercise as well as conducting observation and evaluation in order to better align operations on a larger scale with their NATO partners. “Coming together with our partner nations is extremely important for us,” Jordan said. “Our deployments will never be with just ourselves. We’re going to have our partner nations with us as

well, so it’s important to see how they function and how they work. “When you get together with your partner nations, it’s an added benefit,” she continued. “It makes everything come together as if we were in a real life situation.” The final day of the LIVEX ended with a blood drive where more than 40 Soldiers donated blood to be used for the Armed Services Blood Program. According to members of the 212th CSH, the LIVEX was a huge success and gave the Soldiers a great learning experience that will keep them ready to deploy at a moment’s notice in order to support service members in harm’s way. “The 212th CSH proved that Strong Europe truly is strong in every aspect and every formation that we have in the European theater,” Rhoades said. “With the focus of this team, from the youngest private to the most senior colonel, these professionals are ready to engage and care for our Soldiers, our Airmen, our Marines, our Sailors and our NATO allies to ensure that our warriors get back into the fight.”

AF begins testing phase for women in combat roles by Secretary of the Air Force Public Affairs Command Information WASHINGTON — In April, the Air Force began conducting physical evaluations required to explore opening the last six career fields that are currently closed to women. When the law prohibiting women in ground combat roles was rescinded, 99 percent of the positions within the Air Force were already inclusive of women. The current study is working to open the last 1 percent, which amounts to more than 4,300 special operations positions. “Ultimately, the initiative to eliminate any remaining gender-based assignment restrictions will improve our readiness and the Air Force’s ability to recruit and retain the most effective and qualified force,” said Secretary of the Air Force Deborah Lee James. The Air Force has conducted focus groups, assessments and operational observations as part of the review and implementation plan directed by Secretary of Defense Chuck

Hagel in June 2013. The thorough review required to meet the directive by Hagel, allowed the Air Force to review standards for all Airmen in the career fields previously restricted to women. “The Air Force is using a scientific approach to directly tie and validate standards to mission requirements,” said Brig. Gen. Brian Kelly, director of Military Force Management Policy. “This testing and evaluation phase will develop the final physical test components that best predict operational success for these specific career fields.” The testing is slated to take place at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, Texas. Approximately 200 male and female volunteers will be recruited for the testing. Local Airmen from the Lackland area who are interested in participating will be the first selected to participate. “This effort marks the most stringent process yet by which we are developing occupationally specific physical standards, scientifically measured against operational requirements to match mission

needs,” Kelly said. “All the services and United States Special Operations Command are working with various scientific and research agencies to review occupational standards to ensure they are specific and current, operationally relevant and are gender neutral.” “This is not about raising or lowering occupational standards,” Kelly said. “The key is to ensure we have set the right standards for the occupation based on mission requirements. The effort is built upon science and experience, to ensure we continue to maintain our readiness and preserve the quality and capability of our AllVolunteer Force.” “This process is about scientifically measuring operational requirements with a focus on training and standards which correlate to the demands of combat,” said Brig. Gen. Giovanni K. Tuck, director of operations. “We owe it to our Airmen we send downrange to make sure they’ve got the best training and equipment to be successful, no matter where they serve.” After the Air Force reviews and

validates the scientifically based standards, James will coordinate her recommendation on currently closed career fields and positions with SOCOM and the other services. “The science behind these standards will inform and further refine the measures used to find the right people for these career fields,” Tuck said. “This validation will help ensure our Air Force remains ready and capable as our battlefield Airmen employ in combat.” The Secretary of Defense is expected to announce final decisions regarding integration of currently closed career fields and positions, as well as any exceptions to policy on or about January 1, 2016. The assignment of women into newly integrated positions and occupations will follow each service’s natural timeline for recruitment, accession and training. Further information for Lackland area Airmen interested in participating in the physical studies will be released from Air Force Education and Training Command.

Get moving, get fit with civilian fitness program by Marisa Novobilski 21st Theater Sustainment Command Public Affairs


or three hours during the work week, Brandon Beach ties on his running shoes and hits the trails near Panzer Kaserne. He’s training to run a trail marathon mid-May, and he needs as much time as possible to get ready. Physical fitness is important to Beach, who’s also a husband, father and full-time Army civilian at the 21st Theater Sustainment Command. The Army Civilian Fitness Program makes it possible for him to train for the race and still have time to meet his work and family needs. “The Army Civilian Fitness Program is great. It allows me to train for races and gets me out of the office for a few hours each week,” Beach, who likes to run in conjunction with his lunch breaks, said. “When I get back to my desk, I am refreshed, focused and ready to tackle my work assignments. I feel so much more productive after a run.” The Army CFP2 is designed to encourage civilian employees to improve their health and fitness through formal physical exercise training and other wellness activity. Army Regulation 600-63, Army Health Promotion, authorizes commanders and supervisors to approve up to three hours of administrative leave per week, allowing employees to participate in physical exercise training, monitoring and education for up to six months in duration. The goal is to raise awareness and knowledge of healthy lifestyle choices and the positive effect these play on workplace productivity. Just as Soldiers need to be fit

to fight, Army civilians need to be healthy in order to be productive members of the work team. “By encouraging civilians to focus on fitness, health and wellness, we can develop leaders of the future,” said Erika Turner, the Comprehensive Soldier Family and Fitness Program manager for the 21st TSC. “A healthy workforce is a productive workforce.

Fitness Program benefit. Even just three hours a week can make a difference.” Though Army regulations authorize up to three hours a week to pursue physical fitness activity, Turner often hears a variety of excuses as to why a person is unable to participate. One often heard excuse is that the civilian workload is too high to leave time for a person to pursue health and wellness during the duty day.

May 1, 2015 Get Fit, from page 23 the program and are available to help employees and supervisors at all levels.” Physical health and fitness for civilians is part of the 21st TSC’s Ready and Resilient Campaign policy. The R2C focuses on building strong leaders, Soldiers, civilians, families and communities by promoting well-being and executing safety and risk reduction programs, a significant part of the Army CFP2. Effective time management plays an important role. There are opportunities to be more efficient in the workplace, thereby freeing up time for civilians to pursue personal health improvement. Civilians need to seek these efficiencies in the workplace to make time for health. Another common excuse many

Kaiserslautern American individuals give for not participating in the Army Civilian Fitness Program is a lack of appropriate facilities and equipment to pursue activities. However, in the KMC there are on-post fitness facilities throughout the region that are open to activeduty military, retirees, dependents and all other military ID cardholders. Some provide 24/7 access to accommodate even the most demanding schedules. Other civilians say that a lack of knowledge of safe training techniques and how to develop a fitness plan prevent them from pursuing participation in the fitness program. Nevertheless, fitness experts are available at the fitness and wellness centers to help both novice and experienced individuals develop a training plan, with a focus on proper techniques and ways to exercise safely.

A visit to the Army’s Comprehensive Soldier and Family fitness website, http://csf2.army.mil/ is another way that civilians can become more confident and educated about health and fitness. “We encourage our civilians to visit the CSF2 site,” Turner said. “It’s a holistic online environment that can really help a person optimize the benefits of the Army Civilian Fitness Program and learn what changes are needed to live a healthier life.” A visit to the site may also encourage civilians who think they do not need to improve health and fitness because they work a desk job, where fitness doesn’t matter, to get on board with the program. By logging into Army Fit and taking the new Global Assessment Tool, GAT 2.0, civilians can get a baseline measurement of their current health and

Page 25 learn ways to improve it. Comprehensive fitness doesn’t just improve physical shape. According to the CSF2 site, the Army CSF2 has been shown to help boost morale, improve health and fitness, and increase productivity in the workplace. Research by the U.S. Army Center for Health Promotion and Preventive Medicine has also shown that encouraging healthy lifestyles enhances individual well-being and health, readiness, war fighting ability and work performance. “Positive health habits lead to a healthy workforce,” Turner said. “The stronger you are health-wise, the better you are able to lead and perform.” A healthy, productive Army team of the future can only be built through dedicated well-being activities today.

Avengers: Age of Ultron When Tony Stark tries to jump-start a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans. Starring Scarlett Johansson, Robr Downey Jr.

Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 In this sequel, in which Kevin James reprises the role of Paul Blart, the security guard is headed to Las Vegas to attend a Security Guard Expo with his teenage daughter Maya, before she departs for college. While at the convention, he inadvertently discovers a heist — and it’s up to Blart to apprehend the criminals. Starring Kevin James, Adam Sandler
